Who We Are

Conservis was built around enterprise sustainability and figuring out how we could help people do more with less. The year was 2008. One of our founders was approached by a group of farmers who said they wanted to manage harvest more profitably, but they didnt have the right technology to do so. We dove into the problem and got busy developing the software that solved their needs. The farmers showed us the path. With our eye on doing more with less, we landed on conserve. Conservis is a Software as a Service (SaaS) company, but the service component is so critical that we built it into our DNA. Centered on supporting our clients diverse needs, we landed on service. Conserve + Service = Conservis

Over a decade later, our farmer-first approach worked. In July of 2021, Conservis engaged in an acquisition by Rabobank, the premier global food and agriculture bank and TELUS Agriculture, the global agriculture technology leader, solidifying that we are in this for the long haul. Together, Rabobank and TELUS Agriculture bring us new expertise, experience and further our global presence, helping solve farmers' data challenges, empowering their decision-making and creating sustainable, profitable opportunities. Our partnership is rooted in helping us achieve new heights - our future is bright!

Conservis is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
